Our own Patricia Steffy attends the Unity Concert! See if you can spot her when the episode airs next week!
The secret is out! On the season finale of Parks and Recreation, Pawnee has the most kick-ass concert they’ve delivered thus far. In the name of unity, Letters to Cleo’s Kay Hanley, The Decemberists, Ginuwine, and Andy Dwyer himself all take the stage. As you can see, Ben Wyatt is a big fan of at least one of those. And isn’t it about time the show paid off that Ginuwine joke!?
The episode entitled “Moving Up” airs on NBC on April 24th at the special time of 8 p.m.
Leslie (Amy Poehler), Ben (Adam Scott), and Andy (Chris Pratt) head to San Francisco for a National Parks Conference. Tom (Aziz Ansari) opens his restaurant, Ron (Nick Offerman) has another run-in with his ex-wife Tammy 2 (Special Guest Megan Mullally), Andy lives a rock and roll fantasy, and Leslie makes a huge decision about her future. Ben also has fun with board games.

In this week’s “What’s the Dating in L.A… cast up to now?” we are checking in with Kristoffer Polaha.
Prior to coming aboard our pilot presentation last summer, Polaha had shot a dramatic pilot from Bones' Hart Hanson entitled Backstrom. Though the pilot didn’t get picked up initially, it did ultimately find a home, and Polaha has just headed back up to the Couve (Vancouver, B.C.) to begin filming the first season.
You can see what StudioSystemNews.com says about the project above and be sure to follow Polaha on Twitter for updates from the set!
